Twenty up for QEII Conference Centre


May 30, 2006 | News

The Queen Elizabeth II "Conference Centre":http://www.venues.org.uk/searches/conference_venues.asp (QEIICC) will be celebrate its 20th anniversary in June. Situated in the heart of Westminster and against the backdrop of the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, The BA London Eye and Westminster Abbey, the centre was opened in June 1986 and was originally intended for use as a "venue":http://www.venues.org.uk for government conferences. It was also opened up to "conferences":http://www.venues.org.uk/searches/conference_venues.asp and "events":http://www.venues.org.uk/searches/event_venues.asp in the private sector shortly after The Centre saw a record turnover of £10.2m in the financial year 2004/05, which was an increase of more than 10 percent on the previous year. It also represented the second consecutive year of growth, with a 30 percent increase on 2002-03. “It is great to be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the opening of The QEIICC which remains as popular as ever as a "conferencing":http://www.venues.org.uk/searches/conference_venues.asp and "event venue":http://www.venues.org.uk/searches/event_venues.asp", says chief executive, Ernest Vincent. “The challenge that we have faced over the past twenty years, which we have met, is to reinvest the right amount of capital in the right things at the right time. It is something we will maintain in the future and in doing so will continue to provide clients with the high standard of facilities the centre is renowned for.”
